Heat Wave: High power, powered up by Sunny Day, decent accuracy, chance to burn, STAB.

Torkoal (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: White Smoke
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Stealth Rock
- Yawn
- Rapid Spin
- Overheat

An excellent lead set. Stealth Rock and Yawn work well together. Rapid Spin removes entry hazards that the foe is likely to set up. Overheat takes down common Steel tyype leads such as Ferrothorn and Forretress, as well as taking down leads like Roserade.

This is the exact moveset for my torkoal, never lost a battle with it. Some other moves might be earthquake or amnesia to dominate his stats. Yawn +protect is also a cheap strategy to do with him.

Sun Team Sweeper:

TTTTT

Torkoal @White Herb
Trait: White Smoke
Nature: Quiet/Modest
EV's: 252 Sp. Atk. 252 Hp. 6 Def.

  • Solar Beam
  • Shell Smash
  • Fire Blast
  • Gyro Ball/Clear Smog

>Nature: Modest is good with clear smog and Quiet is good with gyro ball.
Solar beam: Coverage + Shell Smash power
Shell Smash: Free stat raise with White Herb
Fire Blast: Great in sun + Shell Smash boost
Gyro Ball/Clear Smog: Great because of low speed and it is coverage.
Clear Smog : Removes stat changes of you're opponent.


Hope I Helped Ya!

If you are running Shell Smash, it may not be wise to use Gyro Ball, as SS raises speed. If you want to use Gyro Ball, it may be better to use Curse. Of course, this is pretty much a special set, it may just be better to go with Clear Smog.

A set for one of my favorite Pokemon.

[email protected]vers
Ability: White Smoke

Curse- Lower that speed and boost the physical.

Gyro Ball- Take advantage of the lowered speed.

Earthquake- A must for coverage.

Superpower- A strong coverage move. The stat decreases do not really matter.

252 HP/200 SDef/56 Atk EVs. Brave nature. Torkoal is a very versatile Pokemon and the Torkoal moveset I use is covered by tigerjay. Just in case he changes his name it has Yawn, Protect, Clear Smog, and Lava Plume.

TOUGH AS SHELL
Torkoal
Nature: Calm
Item: Leftovers
Ability: White Smoke
EVs: 140 Def. 250 Sp. Def. 120 HP

Protect
Will-O-Wisp
Iron Defense
Amnesia

Will-O-Wisp burns the defending Pokemon. Protect puts the burn to good use. Plus you only take damage every other turn. Plus it puts leftovers to good use. Iron Defense raises defense by 2 and Amnesia raises special defense by 2.

White Smoke Prevents your stats from being lowered. Every Amnesia and Iron Defense is put to good use and is not a waste.

This Torkoal is a tank. Just Watch out for taunt!

Torkoal (M) @ Assault Vest
Ability: White Smoke
Evs: 252 HP, 252 Sp.Atk, 6 Sp.Def
Nature: Modest (+Sp.Atk,-Atk)
- Lava Plume
- Earth Power
- Sludge Bomb/Clear Smog
- HP Electric

Lava Plume gets STAB & is used to try and get that sweet Burn. Earth Power and HP Electric cover your Rock & Water weaknesses. Sludge Bomb is for Fairy-types, and while Clear Smog is weaker, it can be used to prevent being set up on.

At last, an Assault Vest fan! I'd like to add a Trick Room set, though with the following moveset:
Eruption
Protect
Earth Power
Sludge Bomb/Explosion (as last resort because of not having HP electric)

Finding for tank torkoal? Perfect then because today I'm showing you some awesome
moveset for tank torkoal

Torkoal (M) @ Balloon/Leftovers
Trait: Drought (To change weather)
EVs: 240 HP / 168 Def / 100
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Yawn
- Lava Plume
- Amnesia
- Solar Beam

Torkoal (F) @ Heat rock
Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 200 Def / 56 SAtk
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Rest
- Sleep talk
- Eruption
- Toxic

This is a rather unique torkoal set that takes advantage of his natural tankiness, and the max damage on Eruption at full health. Even if she takes a couple hits, just rest sleep talk and have a full health eruption blast them away.
Toxic is here as a staple to provide pressure on walls and tanks. Calm nature for the SDef coverage, as Torkoal already has a naturally high defense.

Ok before I gonna post an answer I would like to say that all movesets that are presented here are awesome, and I just want to share my ideas with you.

Torkoal (M) @ Heat rock
Trait: Drought
EVs: 7 HP / 252 Sp, Def / 252 Sp. Atk
Nature: Modest (+Sp. Atk -Atk)
-Flamethrower
-Solar beam
-Sludge bomb
-Amnesia

I think this is pretty decent strategy. Set up Amnesia once and then with ability Drought and Heat rock Solar beam rock water and ground types which you are weak too and crash your opponent!

Torkoal (M) @ Red Card
Trait: White Smoke
EVs: 10 Atk / 250 HP / 250 SDef
Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
-LavaPlume : Good STAB + a 30% chance burn.
-RapidSpin : To get over Hazards.
-Curse : Nice way of busting his natural defense, boost his ATK and providing GiroBall a nice help.
-GiroBall : perfect synergy with curse.

This is a very specific use of Torkoal support as I dont use any hazer on my time so it works really well for me. If I cant handle the enemy sweeper any more I switch Torkoal and burn his RedCard. Them keep him in battle as much as I can using his ENORMOUS natural Def + Curse(Def Boost) and EVs on SDef end HP to cover his weak spot. His still not a perfect S.Tank but he's really tough.
